I was feeling particularly lazy and wanted my food right away, so I opted to heat it in the microwave. I ended up microwaving it for twice the amount of time listed on the box. It was thicker than I expected and something about the flavor kept throwing me off. Maybe it was the sodium content - I don't typically eat processed foods and I don't add table salt to most of my foods. (I horrified my best friend once when she visited me in my old, super-tiny studio apartment. She asked for salt for her eggs and I had to reply that I had none. I couldn't bake in that place, so I didn't even have any for baking.)
The soup was edible. Nothing exciting, but not horrible either. I'm perfectly okay with adding this soup to my emergency food supplies, but I think I'll have to try some of the other flavors.
If you're interested in trying this soup, Pacific Foods is offering coupons here. Also, the current issue of Whole Food's Whole Deals has a coupon for $1 off two.
(The top right picture of the soup is more true to color, but came out blurry, so here's a sharper photo.)
